religions, actual religions and i think that, look, there's ways that people can take days off for their special days. i think though that you're going to be looked at funny if you insist you need halloween off. i think it's insulting if you're a wiccan or a pagans and if you're an atheist or a pagans, if you're celebrating nature, an everyday experience. >> tucker: only a country too rich too long could be this frivolous and silly. the statements from the school, the information about the wiccan and pagans holidays, the statement says, has been in the guide since last fall. keep in mind this is not intended just for faculty, this is an informational guide for anyone across campus. letting you know. >> letting you know which days you can take. >> tucker: and christianity and comes down to-- >> i think that there's a rejection of tradition. i think this is again, not about elevating anyone else, it's about paganses and wiccans used for a political agenda to downgrade what's important to a majority of americans. i think that this is an anti-tradition action. i think paganses and
campaigned. >> steve did all day. >> i'm the right age. >> call him now? >> and the right religion. >> 42 years. you know, what's interesting to me about this is you're right. you know, benedict is mr. inside and his election, first of all, there were so many reasons why it was sort of doubtful, he was an unlikely choice. likely but unlikely in 2005. election was made possible by rules change that pope john paul ii put in place in 1996 and took the old super jorkt with two thirds of the cardinals to agree an they have as many ballots it took and he said after 30 ballots, a mere 30 ballots, majority rule wins and when somebody gets a majority, end the process because the majority hangs on and then win and probably enabled benedict to win in 2005. almost unanimous and four ballots and that's it. he did away with the rules change and so we have reverted the two thirds majority and it's the only way that pope john paul ii would have become the pope. there was sort of two candidates duking it out and he was the compromise choice and the unlikely, nobody thought him, polish guy with a chance. a
by their religion, their skin color, their financial status or anything like that, but to accept them for who they are. i'm guilty of having what i like to call the small town complex. coming from a small town, i've got it. but it's where you think your world's only this big and that's how it is because that's what you were taught. i'm 24, and i know that's not the case anymore. but really, i mean, we always do that. we as humans are so fast to judge one another without really getting to know one another for what they are. so i definitely think it's something we could all take, take to and listen to. so anyways, we were stationed in northeastern afghanistan in a place called as jr. man, it's in the kunar province right on the pakistan border. and this is where i would be stationed with lieutenant john sovereign, gunnier is cent -- expubl and doc leighton. doc leighton was a navy corpsman, but they might as well be marines, so i'm going to cull him a -- call him a marine from here on out. [applause] so part of my opportunity was getting to meet these guys and getting to develop our team. becau
out of office. i think they are going to have to form some kind of religion and go to church every sunday and worship him. it is all ridiculous. all the political -- it is just a game. nobody even wants to go or listen to the sides even more. the want to be right. host: what keeps you from being that way? caller: i watch politics continuously, every day, i listened to all sides. i believe in listening to the facts. i do not care if you are republican or democrat. i am a patriotic person. i care about this nation. sake, we are $16 trillion in debt. if we go bankrupt -- host: respect to the topic about hegel nomination. -- bring us back to the topic about the hagel nomination. caller: there is some reason why the bottom. host: this on twitter -- here is another tweet -- in clinton, maryland, a democrat. caller: this is politics as usual. i will cannibalize -- they are eating their own. here is a guy who has been in a warrant -- a war. he has endorsements from other secretaries of defense. you have a leon panetta who wants to get on with his life. politicians in washington are playing
-- with criteria neutral toward religion and poses no religious favoritism. he says once fema has a program in place to aid building reairs, houses of worship should not be exempt from receiving this aid. this is all the more important given the neutral role we have seen houses of worship play without regard to religion to those afflicted in the wake of sandy and countless previous disasters. federal disaster relief aid in the form of social insurance and means of helping battered communities get them back on their feet. churches, synagogues, mosques and other houses of worship are an essential part of the recovery process. religious lib tir scholar, madam speaker, professor douglas lacoc wrote a letter endorsing h r. 5 2 writing that charitable contributions to places of worship are tax deductible, even though the tax benefits to the donor are like a matching grant from the government. these deductions have been uncontroversial because they were included without discrimination in a much broader category of all not for profit organizations devoted to charitable, educational, religious or s
fellow religion, i want our people out of there. that is not right. i come over to our country and try to kill us. we need to stay over there and fight for our freedom. host: you bring up interesting points. basic idea we have in this country is that we get into wars, but we very rapidly lose the ability to support those wars, political perspective. we saw what happened in vietnam. if desert storm last longer, we would have seen the same thing there. we know what happened with iraqi freedom. you're looking at a nation that can go in, with a superb military capability, which her daughter is a part of, and it can make a lot of differences, but the problem you have is that you have a political situation where we cannot sustain a long- term deployment, 12-13 years in afghanistan over the long term. it has become america's longest war. economically, you look at how that works. the big problem that i have with the drawdown is perhaps related to what your saying -- you have to be very careful about what to tell the enemy. you have to have a negotiating position that gets you from the strength
of organized religion. but i love god. start the clock now. >> reporter: because it really is a game show, there are prizes. winning teams get $20,000 each episode. but there's $100,000 for the tournament champion. all prize money, however, goes to the winning team's charity of choice. [ cheers ] >> having a baby at the age of 90, memaw. just saying. nothing's out of the realm of possibility here. >> reporter: most pastors aren't as funny as foxworthy. he assured us he's not trying to compete in that arena. he knows his limitations. >> when i started hosting "fifth grader," people certainly thought i was smarter than i was, you know. and i would say, hey, if i didn't have the cards -- the shortest show on television. and now i'm doing this and people think, well, this guy has all the spiritual answers in the world. i'm like, no, i'm still the samsame idi idiot. still two decision was drywalling, you know. >> reporter: for "today," harry smith, los angeles. >>> let's head out to the plaza and check the weather from dylan. >> good morning, lester. good morning, everyone. you're from miami?
. was there any idea in your mind that he was motivated by religion and-- >> no doubt. in our training in the military. we're taught before a jihadist would perform their act. that's one of the things they say, god is great. that's their motivating piece to give them the imaging to perform any devious act they're going to perform. >> you say you want to make sure that the mistakes that led to this tragedy never happened again. and so what do you want to see happen? >> well, the individuals that were in charge of major hassan when he was at walter reed need to be held accountable, not by a lateral transfer from one department or one division to another. they need to be held accountable by showing dereliction of duty not stepping up and doing his job. the second thing. we need to have better lines of communications between all the federal services, the fbi and others were tracking major hassan and tonight let d 0 d did not let them know. and dod didn't let the fbi or homeland security the issues they were having this guy. >> alisyn: problems. >> tucker: yes, they are. sergeant, thank you
